Electric cars are expensive. But no EV is as expensive as this creation from the famous Pininfarina. Its name is Pininfarina Barchetta and it has about a million billion horsepower.
The hypercar was presented by the Italians at the Monterey Car Week in California. The car previously bore the code name B95, but Pininfarina introduced the world to the EV as the Pininfarina Barchetta.
That name might sound familiar: built between 1995 and 2005 Fiat the Fiat Barchetta. Apart from the fact that both cars go homeless through life, they have little to do with each other.

This is thanks to the four electric motors it is equipped with – one for each wheel. Together they ensure that the Barchetta sprints to 100 in less than 2 seconds.
